Publisher's Summary

Polls reveal that 85 percent of Americans believe there was a conspiracy behind Lee Harvey Oswald. Some even believe Oswald was entirely innocent. In this encyclopedic, absorbing audiobook, Vincent Bugliosi shows how the public has come to believe such lies about the day that changed the course of history.

Bugliosi has devoted almost 20 years of his life to this project, and is determined to show that, despite the overwhelming popular perception, Oswald killed Kennedy and acted alone.

The brilliant prosecutor of Charles Manson and the man who forged an ironclad case of circumstantial guilt around O. J. Simpson in his best-selling Outrage, Bugliosi is perhaps the only man in America capable of "prosecuting" Oswald for the murder of President Kennedy. Reclaiming History is a narrative compendium of fact, ballistic evidence, reexamination of key witnesses, and common sense. Every detail and nuance is accounted for, every conspiracy theory revealed as a fraud upon the American public.

Bugliosi's irresistible logic, relentless pursuit of the truth, and command of the evidence shed fresh light on this American nightmare, providing a new understanding of what did and did not happen in Dallas on November 22, 1963. At last we know what really happened. At last it all makes sense.

What the Critics Say

"Vincent Bugliosi is an American master of common sense, a punishing advocate and a curmudgeonly refreshing voice of reason....With this work, Bugliosi has definitively explained the murder that recalibrated modern America. It is a book for the ages." (Los Angeles Times Book Review)

    "really worthwhile"
    Any additional comments?

    all i can say is the logic in this book is unassailable. extremely thorough, obviously opinionated and "one sided", but hard to argue against.

    "Do you Believe in the Conspiracy?"

    This book outlines the details and opinions of the lone gunman theory. A must read for anyone wh actually believed in the conspiracy and now changed my mind. Read it with an open mind. It'll be worth your time.

    "Exhausting..."

    I bought this book because I really enjoyed Helter Skelter, by the same author, Vincent Bugliousi. Despite being very long and detailed it was fascinatingly written and read.
    Unfortunately, I can not say the same about this book...

    "Reclaiming History" is too long and goes into tiresome and boring detail. I gave it a good (and long...) chance, but I just couldn't listen through the whole thing. It was way too boring...

    "Well worth the listen"

    First off, Edward Hermann is brilliant in his narration. What a great voice to lend to this book. The first half on specific timeframes of the events offers a lot of information I hadn't heard before. Very interesting stuff. While the second half is worth listening to, I found myself becoming more annoyed every time the author hurled another negative descriptor onto conspiracy theorists, claiming them to be either stupid, ignorant, deliberately misleading, misinformed, or whatever term he wished to use. While I am sure he did his homework before writing it, should I really believe everything he says simply because he says it? Even with this question, it was a wonderful review of a time I lived through and have read many works about.

    "JFK assasination through the eyes of a prosecutor"

    Bugliosi analyzes the JFK assassination using as if it were a simple murder investigation basing his conclusions on facts and not speculation. He lays out a complete time line of the day of the murder, provides motives and evidence for Lee Harvey Oswald being the lone assassin, and shows that conspiracy theorist often rely on long debunked false information on which to base their outlandish claims. The only complaint is that the audio book is abridged.

    "A great documentary"

    The killing of JFK will always make interesting reading and this story is very will written. Listing to this "documentary will take away the doubt about who was lone killer.

    "riveting"

    After listening to this first rate analysis of the assassination and various conspiracies you'll be hard pressed not to laugh in anyone's face that thinks Oswald didn't do it alone. Some say Bugliosi is too smarmy in his deflections, but honestly, after the nonsense has persisted for this long, I don't blame him. Great listen, download it now and put this case to rest for good.
